Solid Waste Management Workshops for Indian Local Officials

Solid Waste Management Workshop under Swachh Bharat Mission
What we did

Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), a flagship program of the Government of India (GoI), aims to ensure clean and hygienic cities and efficient waste management across 4041 statutory towns in India. The Swachh Bharat Mission brought the municipal solid waste management sector to the forefront of governance of the Urban Local Bodies (ULBs). However, limited human and financial resources remains a major constraint in being able to implement successful projects. Therefore, there is an immediate need to create awareness among ULBs regarding the objectives of SBM along with revised rules, enabling policies and guidelines. To this end, Solid Waste Management Exposure Workshops will be offered for the officials of 1600 Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) under Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban) Phase III (2018 – 2019). The workshops will strengthen institutional capacities at ULBs towards collection, treatment, disposal and efficient management of various types of waste, promote 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) initiatives, and facilitate integrated efforts towards improving the health of the urban environment.

What we achieved

ICLEI conducted Municipal Solid Waste Management Exposure Workshops for more than 100 urban local bodies and strengthened their institutional capacities towards collection, treatment, disposal and efficient management of various types and categories of waste. The project also developed training modules, identified external experts and facilitated site visits for participants from local governments. Five 3-day workshops were conducted at different locations as suggested by the National Institute of Urban Affairs. The workshops and site visits will help the municipal officials to develop an understanding of the commonly faced issues, challenges and constraints of managing municipal solid waste. The capacities of the municipal staff will be built to effectively execute municipal solid waste projects and plans as per the mandate of the revised Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016.
